Not sure this matters, but Cooke had been dead for a couple of years. It was his business partner who sued. I have no evidence of this, but my guess is if Cooke was still alive, Otis would have been happy to acknowledge the influence.
Your comments inspired me to go back and look at what you'd written (https://pkcantexplain.blogspot.com/2016/12/the-handmaiden-2016.html for folks who'd like to read along). We latched on to a lot of the same things! As much as I complain about movies being too long, I didn't notice in this case, perhaps because it comes in clearly marked segments and I was watching at home where pee breaks are easy to take.
Thanks. One thing I try very hard to avoid is proselytizing about meds. Worked for me, but everyone is different. I will say that it was pretty stupid that I waited until I was in my 50s, though. It's a legend, probably not apocryphal, that when I was a kid, I was prescribed some kind of "nerve medicine" ... can only imagine what I must have been like to deserve that, although that stuff was more common back then.

The Dodgers are a good team with a good future. They seem to know what they are doing. The heartbreak of today will dissipate, just as it did for Royals fans in 2015. Giants fans are enjoying this moment, but on March 29, 2018, the Giants will be on the field at Dodger Stadium watching their rivals raise the NL championship flag. I also understand how much it sucks when your team loses the Series at home. I was there in 1989 when the A's completed their sweep of the Giants. Now that I think of it, the SF version of the Giants have been in 5 World Series. They lost the two that ended at home, won the three that ended on the road. Might be nice for them to reverse that trend. I just hope they get another chance. Right now, the Dodgers look like a much better bet.

It's funny, fans are the ones who take this stuff to heart. Eck probably gets tired of being asked about it, but hey, his team won the Series the next year, he's in the Hall of Fame, life goes on. Not for fans, though! McCovey said something similar, that he felt sorry for fans because we just watch, we can't have an impact. When he hit that line drive, he thought, we'll get 'em next year. He was 24. The Giants had five future Hall-of-Famers on the roster. But he only made the postseason one more time, in 1971. Had a good series, too, 6-for-14 with a couple of homers. Bob Robertson had a better series, though ... hit 4 homers ... and the Giants didn't make the playoffs again for 16 years.

I think my main grading bias was called inflation :-).
